Ronaldo scores twice as Real Madrid win historic Champions League title

19 June 2017

The Portuguese forward scored twice as Real Madrid won the Champions League for the second season in a row by beating Juventus 4-1 on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo helped inspire a convincing 4-1 win over Juventus at the Millennium Stadium as they made history in the progress and became the first ever team to defend the Champions League trophy.

His career goal tally in club and worldwide soccer now stands at 600.

Madrid's supremacy was clear in the second half.

"I think people don't have words to criticise because the numbers don't lie, you know?"

Mohammed Kozbar , chairman of the mosque , told The Sun: 'Whoever did this, he did it to hurt people and it's a terrorist attack . Police said the male driver had also been taken to hospital as a precaution and would receive a mental health assessment.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Juventus, who are the Serie A champions, have now lost five Champions League finals since they last won the competition in 1996.

Ronaldo delivered the fatal blow three minutes later, tucking the ball just inside the post with a major assist from Modric.

The Italians started the better, justifying Zidane's warnings that his former side was the complete outfit.

"Zidane believes in us a lot", Ronaldo said.

"It didn't seem like I was going to make it to the final but I've worked tirelessly at home and it's the reward you get for all the hard work you've put in". "We've won trophies and of course it is one of the best moments of my career - I have the opportunity to say this every year but it's true!"

Elsewhere, an angry protester attempted to rally the large crowd to march on the Prime Minister's residence on Downing Street. The 24-story Grenfell Tower in the north Kensington neighbourhood in west London is near several major transport hubs.

Costa Rican Keylor Navas has been criticised for inconsistency. The goalkeeper blocked a header and strike from Gonzalo Higuain, and produced a one-handed save when Miralem Pjanic picked a gap through a crowd of defenders.

Madrid drew first blood in the 20th minute when Ronaldo flicked the ball wide to Dani Carvajal before artfully sweeping the Spaniard's return pass into the bottom-left corner via a nick off Leonardo Bonucci.

In the latter stages of the campaign he improved and made some fine stops on the final day against Malaga to ensure his team lifted the title for the first time since 2012.

It owed much to Madrid controlling midfield, largely thanks to Modric, who set up Ronaldo's second. Would anyone bet against him doing it all again next year?

"(Madrid) showed their class and the attitude needed to play in this kind of game", Buffon said after losing a third final.
